Little Rock, Ark. — An out-of-state visitor hit it big by winning the latest big money prize from the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.
ASL officials said Kenneth Wegner of Wisconsin stopped near the White Oak Station on Parkwood Drive in Eureka Springs and grabbed a Powerball Quick Pick ticket, adding the power play option.
The retired man said he plays the lottery daily, so he made sure to stop by the hardware store on his way to pick up tickets.
Wagner’s quick choice turned into quick cash when one of the tickets matched the four white balls and the Powerball from the April 10 draw, and his power play choice doubled his prize to $100,000.
He claimed his prize Wednesday in Little Rock and told ASL officials he plans to pay the bills with his winnings.
The Powerball prize is still growing, and ASL officials said Wednesday’s jackpot is estimated to be worth $202 million. The ASL LOTTO jackpot is still looking for its first winner for the $2.15 million prize, and the Mega Millions jackpot come Friday will be worth an estimated $476 million.
However, the ASL says that the real winners are the students of Arkansas. Since 2009, the Lottery has given away more than $1.2 billion through more than 675,000 scholarships, all while bringing in more than $164 million in state and federal tax revenue.
